About Us

We started this business as an opportunity coming past and grabbed it. Back in 1986 Hardcase Container Hire bought its first container and it was used as a builder’s shed in a remote building site in West Auckland. When the project was finished, I said to my brother “What shall we do with this now-obsolete container?” He replied “Let’s put a small advertisement in the local paper for hire.” We did and it resulted in 2 responses asking to hire that container. So we bought a second container and gave them both the container they needed.

Now the business has taken root and grown into a real work. We have the means to help people with a need in storage and transport. Let’s do it!

It has been a fantastic business (with its ups and downs along the way) as we have always tried to meet the demand for container storage. Our hard-earned labour has resulted in a service that is now second to none. We have mountains of quality containers that are used for storage and as utilities in all industries around Auckland and the Coromandel/Waikato areas, as well as for individuals at home. We pride ourselves in being able to satisfy the storage and transport needs of home movers, house renovators, builders, retail businesses, schools and local councils, and many, many more.
